I loved the geometric shapes on the container. I don't know why, but the retro color scheme came to mind right away. If you look at the container you'll see a square some lines, and a circle. I changed the circle to an oval (it felt more retro-y; and I wanted to use my oval punches :) ). To do the "lines" I crimped an inch or so to the right of the ribbon.
So, the square pegs are a bit messy because I stamped them with craft, but it wasn't a good imprint. And then I wanted to add a bit of chocolate to tie in the oval and when I colored in with my marker, the brown was much darker than the green, so I went over the image with the olive marker.
